    Just came home and laid my phone down to ironically enough go back to the latest stable version of iOS 6 and as soon as I plugged my iPhone into my Mac the screen went black and now it doesn't do anything. I can't get it to turn on at all. Holding the sleep button doesn't bring up anything. Holding both doesn't do anything.

    If it is a hardware issue than it's quite the coincidence it happened 2 hours into having iOS 7. I think I'll let my curiosity wait in the future and stay away from anything with the word beta in it.

    If anyone has any tips of anything I could try I'd appreciate it. 32gb iPhone 4 GSM

    Try to get your phone in DFU mode. Should work.

    Not ironic and not bricked.

    Put it in DFU mode and restore.

    Both posters before you recommended entering DFU mode and restoring.

    What the OP did was a hard reset. So, I guess it's not that they don't read well, but you don't understand what DFU mode is..

    As the other two posters suggested, OP, try DFU and restore.

    Is your UDID legally registered from Apple's Devolper program? If so take it in there and see what they can do..

    But anyways, wait a little while and then try to put your phone into DFU mode again. I had the same problem with my iPod, and after about two hours it randomly worked. Good Luck.

    Mine did the same thing earlier. A reset resolved it (hold down power and home buttons). I would try that again.

    Your phone is not bricked.
